he Acer Aspire 5740G laptop offers great performance at a good price. The inclusion of a DirectX 11.0-class discrete graphics chip is another plus, providing good gaming performance and video playback. If you're in the market for an affordable laptop with the latest features, and you don't mind the deficient audio playback and the lack of Bluetooth support, this 'average' machine may be just right.

The Acer Aspire 5740G is a refreshed model in Acer's 2010 Aspire series line up. Earlier versions of the Aspire have been decent performers with a Value for Money (VFM) proposition. This year it receives an update with Intel's Core i3 330M 2.13 GHz processor and the new generation ATI Radeon HD 5470 graphics chip. The rest of the design and components are the same. So will Acer continue to reign in the paisa vasool desktop replacement segment? Or should people expect more than just a CPU/Graphics update.

This $750 Acer laptop offers very good performance, but substandard audio and a lack of Bluetooth may limit its appeal.
The Acer Aspire 5740G-6979 all-purpose laptop falls squarely in the conservative middle of these units, stuffing a next-generation Core i5-430M processor and ATI Radeon Mobility 5650 graphics hardware into a bulky, last-generation laptop chassis.

Acer Aspire AS5740G-6979: Budget Priced but Great Gaming
Source: AnandTech English
At the end of the day, the major point to make about the Acer Aspire 5740-6979 is the one we've made repeatedly throughout the course of this review: this thing's available for just $749. The mobile gamer on a budget would be hard-pressed to find a better combination of specifications anywhere else. Other manufacturers are packing much less powerful GPUs in their notebooks in this price range, and that's assuming there's even a dedicated GPU at all.

Acer's Aspire 5740G-6395 is an amazing value for those wanting to get a thin and light laptop system with a dedicated graphics processor for light PC gaming and HD video watching. Performance is strong thanks to the Core i5 processor that will work well for all those who aren't looking at something like digital video editing. Graphics are fast enough for playing the latest 3D games.

The Acer Aspire 5740G-334G32Mn sells for Rs. 43,500. Reasons why you should think about buying the Acer Aspire 5740G laptop are many -- the laptop offers a good screen, very good performance and features, nice build quality, full-keyboard and a gesture-enabled touchpad. However, the laptop's quite heavy and doesn't have a great battery life. If you want a nice, big laptop for home usage and casual gaming, and if you don't care much about its mediocre battery life, the Acer Aspire 5740G should hold you in good stead.

Acer reviews


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470: Entry level DirectX 11 chip with GDDR5 support but only 80 shader cores. Supports Eyefinity (up to 4 monitors) and 8-ch HD audio over HDMI. Performance on par with the old GeForce 8600M GT.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5450: Entry level DirectX 11 graphics card with a similar clock speed (and performance) as the HD 4570 but at a lower power consumption.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650: Middle class DirectX 11 capable graphics card with a power consumption of about 15-20 Watt. Supports Eyevision (up to 6 monitors)

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i3:

330M:

The Core i3-330M is a slower clocked 350M and therefore also lacks the Turbo Boost feature and clocks with max. 2.13 GHz. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD 3150) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

Intel Core i5:

430M:

The Core i5-430M is a middle class dual core CPU that features only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-640M) and clocks between 2.26-2.53 GHz (Turbo Mode). Furthermore, VT-d, trusted Execution and AES features are missing in the 430M. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics with 500-733 MHz) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

520M:

The Core i5-520M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-640M) and clocks between 2.4-2.93 GHz (Turbo Mode). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD 3150) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.


15.6: 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.5 kg:

This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

2.8 kg:

This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.


76.67%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
